  • The anterograde tracer Phaseolus vulgaris-leucoagglutinin was used to examine the organization of the projections to the striatum from medial prefrontal and frontal cortical areas in the rat with reference to their relation to cholecystokinin-like immunoreactivity in the striatum. Medial prefrontal cortical areas projected bilaterally, with an ipsilateral predominance, to the striatum. Most of the positive fibres were found in medial and ventral areas of the caudate-putamen and in the nucleus… CONTINUE READING
